From Bryan Hulbert
TULSA, Okla. (January 28, 2019) — Adding dates with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour as well as the ASCS Elite Non-Wing Series presented by Abilene Powder Coating, the new Monarch Motor Speedway in Iowa Park, Texas will see three rounds of action under the ASCS banner in 2019.
A special event track in 2019, the track formally known as Wichita Speedway was recently purchased by CRE Promotions. Owner Charles Raymond Evans III also heads the Deep South Ultimate Super Late Model Series.
Starting with the ASCS Elite Non-Wing Series presented by Abilene Powder Coating, the newly added traditional Sprint Car series will visit the three-eighths mile oval on Friday, April 19 and Saturday, April 20.
“I love Non-Wing Sprints and wanted to give those guys a big show and make it an annual event that can just get bigger,” commented track owner, Charles Raymond Evans III of the two-day Elite ASCS Non-Wing show.
Dubbed the ASCS Non-Wing Nationals, Friday’s preliminary event will be $1,000 to win, $200 to start with Saturday’s finale upping the payout to $5,000 to win, $300 with an additional $1,000 bonus to sweep the weekend.
For the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour, the series will kick off the 2019 ASCS Sizzlin’ Summer Speedweek “Where Racing Royalty Gets Its Crown” on Friday, May 31. A $4,000 to win, $400 to start showdown, the event pairs with Route 66 Motor Speedway in Amarillo, Texas which takes place on Saturday, June 1.
“Right now we have six weekends for nine races this year, and everything we’re doing is big events. We’re not doing weekly stuff,” stated Evans. “I really wanted to bring premier events to this facility, and getting to start the whole Speedweek lineup, I feel like it just helps put us on the map.”
